The "Prion Digest" is a Usenet distributed e-mail list, compiled from
postings to it, and distributed weekly (current plan is for early Sat.

While the main goal of the digest is to provide a resource for
researchers working with prions and interested bystanders, all are
welcome.  All articles posted will be included in the next digest.  If
a poster feels that his posting is of an urgent nature, it may be
distributed sooner than the regular digest.  If you want to post an
"urgent" message send it to the prion-request address, not the prion

All requests regarding administrivia (subscriptions, cancellations,
comments, etc.) should be mailed to the moderator 
<prion-request at acc.stolaf.edu>.  All postings to the digest should be
directed to <prion at acc.stolaf.edu>.

There are archives of all back issues available via anonymous ftp from
beowulf at acc.stolaf.edu ( in the pub/prion directory.  If
you do not have ftp access, please write <prion-archive at acc.stolaf.edu>
and back issues will be mailed to you.

Well, here's the first posting to the digest.  The initiator for the
digest was a posting I made to the net asking for bibliographies on
Prions or related diseases.  I got a rather good responce, so I polled
the respondents about a digest and almost all (1 didn't) thought it
would be a good idea, hence the digest you see before you now.

I have included a refer format bibliography database I made up from
the responses I received from my orig. inquiry.  Not all of the
entries are complete.  I have managed to track down the missing info
on some of them, but I have not had a lot of free time due to midterms
comming up (this week - groan).

If anyone wants to keep sending bib entries into me, I will gladly
keep a current bibliography file updated and available via ftp or mail
(maybe a monthy digest posting if there is intrest).
